HBH's Host Ralph Pezzullo

 
HEADSHOT-10375.jpg

A New York Times and International Bestselling author whose books have sold more than 6 million copies worldwide and literally born into the world of geopolitics, Ralph is the son of a legendary United States Diplomat who brokered the 1979 resignation of Nicaragua’s strongman dictator, after more than 4 decades of his rule.

 

Growing up in Nicaragua, Mexico, Vietnam, Bolivia, Colombia, Guatemala, and Uruguay, Ralph honed his investigative instincts and informed sense as a writer and reporter across the world. He often witnessed historic events first-hand like the Gulf Of Tonkin Incident, the overthrow of South Vietnam’s last Prime Minister, and the early days of Che Guevarra’s revolution in Bolivia.

 

After receiving a Master's Degree in International Affairs he worked on Capitol Hill and later as a correspondent for Associated Press covering assignments in Latin America, creating relationships with other diplomats, CIA agents, and military attaches across the world.

 

Ralph has written screenplays for all the major film studios and has worked with award-winning directors like Oliver Stone and Antoine Fuqua, among others. A limited series he created and wrote called Bull’s Eye is currently in development at HBO.
